The MFA Awards in 2014

Last night's Media Federation awards saw GAP Research's John Grono inducted into the prestigious MFA Hall of Fame.

Hundreds of people from across the media, marketing and advertising industry cheered as Grono, who has more than 35 years of research and media experience, took the stage to claim his accolade, and make an uncharacteristically short speech.

Grono, who worked at Nielsen, Clemenger BBDO and OMD Australia before launching GAP Research in 2002, was greeted with a video clip with messages from peers and pals describing him as 'passionate', 'creative' and 'determined' role model.

Grono's research career started in 1977 and he has gone on to represent the MFA on many committees and initiatives – from Val Morgan’s CineTAM and authoring the MFA’s harmonisation guidelines paper, to being a representative on the IAB Australia Measurement Council and the OzTAM Technical Advisory Committee.

Other big wins of the night went to The Monkeys, Ikon Communications, UM, Match Media, MediaCom, Starcom MediaVest Group, Mindshare, JCDecaux and more.
